|Visited a local farm yesterday to buy a Christmas tree. For now we are storing it outside - waiting for Sunday when our daughter, son-in-law and granddaughter come over for lunch and we'll all decorate the tree and house together.|
|In the meantime this little pot grown spruce is providing some festive cheer to our living room.|
|I plonked it inside the old galvanised wash-tub and trimmed it with some of my vintage glass baubles...|
|For now though I am having to concentrate on the upcoming Vintage Christmas Bazaar at Frome on Saturday.|
I've made two more medium sized rag doll to take with me...This is Gertrude, dressed in vintage fabrics, antique lace and her WWII 'Gertie' sweetheart brooch.
|And this is Bethany...|
|Dressed in a rare antique French fabric.|
|I've made some more lavender-filled French linen hearts. Some with lace pockets to slip in a little treat for someone special (for now they have Victorian paper scraps slipped inside.)|
|And then there are some others with decorative lace fronts and glass buttons.|
Smaller hearts made from antique French quilt.
|I've made two more fairy dolls...|
To continue with the sweet/pudding theme...
